A thought on Twitter

I know the whole point of a public Twitter account is so that anyone can follow you, but I can’t help thinking now and then that it would be interesting if I had the option to fill in a ‘why do you want to follow this person’ button right after I click ‘follow’, so that the person being followed would have some idea of how I got to know about them in the first place (did I chance upon their blog, see them speak at a conference, meet them in person, at an event, and so on). It would also make people more likely to follow me back (and vice-versa, more importantly).
